Applications

LiteSentry technology provides inspection and quality control in all of the major flat glass manufacturing processes: tempering, insulating, laminating, and coating.

Tempering

Distortion Measurement

The Oospreysprey 7 Distortion + Flatness Inspection system is the industry standard technology for eliminating distortion and ensuring quality during and after processing. High-resolution optics and sophisticated algorithms detect distortion in each sheet of glass in any orientation, in real-time, allowing precise control of production processes. Patented Osprey technology detects distortion other systems can't see. Read more about the Osprey 7 >>

Recipe Selection + Tempering Furnace Control

owl 2

Designed for installation before the tempering furnace, the Owl 2 Recipe Selection + Tempering Furnace Control system is a non-contact optical system measuring glass thickness, coatings, dimensions, and sheet locations. Real-time data enables the furnace control system to automatically select the appropriate recipe and optimize the heat profile. The result: precise cycle time, optimized throughput, and better quality. Read more about the Owl 2 >>

Scratch + Defect Inspection

Hawk 4The Hawk 4 Scratch + Defect Inspection system provides high-resolution inspection of both front and rear surfaces of monolithic glass at conveyor velocities up to 914 mm/36 inches per second, the fastest in the industry. The Hawk 4 is designed for insulating, double or triple glazing, lamination, and coating lines. The result: defective glass is caught and removed from the production line before IG assembly or further processing. Read more about the Hawk 4 >>

Thickness + Coating Detection

LiteSentry Raven 12The Raven 12 Thickness + Coating Sensor mounts on any processing line to measure moving or stationary glass. The Raven measures thickness to +/-0.1 mm and detects low-E coating type and the glass face on which it is applied for both moving and stationary glass. The non-contact sensor is designed for industrial environments, providing 100% inspection and automated data collection, replacing periodic human inspection. The result: proper coating and surface orientation, reducing waste. Read more about the Raven >>

Coating

Load Geometry + Fault Detection

The Load Validator system inspects float glass loads entering critical continuous processes, such as high vacuum coating or washing prior to tempering. The Load Validator detects faults in the glass or in load geometry, sounding an alarm to stop the conveyor. The system detects and eliminates several sources of glass breakage and subsequent interruption of the coating or tempering systems. The result: fewer defects and improved processing.
